In your comments, please reflect on the following while comparing the Native Son video and the Heifer Project Video:

~What was alike and/or different about the two groups profiled? 
~What seemed to be the differences in the factors that kept people included or excluded in the educational process?  
~What were their obstacles to education?  
~Why was (or is one) more successful while the other isn't/ wasn't?

Who is dropping out of school in the United States and why?  How does this video change some of your assumptions about the challenges that face different parts of the U.S. population?
